    What size do you like your tv, reading, or snoozing on the couch quilt to be? This would be for someone who is about 5'4".

    I'm 5'3" (every little bit counts!) and 60-65" square is perfect for me.

    About 50" square is adequate for me (about 5'5" ).

    I'd aim for at least 45" wide, prefer 54" and 72" long. Enough to tuck the feet under

    I usually make them around 60" square. you can use it on the diagonal to cover up completely or just use it as a lap quilt.

    I'm 5'4" and I like 60x90 also. It works for my DH at 6'1" that way too. I buy 2.5 yards of fleece for batting, works perfect.

    Lap quilts: I aim for putting borders so quilt is at least 48 - 50" wide and about 60" long.

    Thanks for the info. I have started cutting some pieces to applique. Going to be away for a couple of days and then will be able to get going on it.

    I try to make mine at least as long as the person is tall, then feet don't stick out.

    I'm 5'7" and I make all my lap quilts 57" x 75". I love to wrap my feet up in the extra length :)

    I agree. I'm 5'6" and I like to tuck my quilt under my feet and over my shoulders.

    I mske mine so I can pull it over my head and under my feet at the same time ... and wide enough that I can turn over and not get a cold backside. Sometimes TV is so boring I want to take a nap instead. Not enough quilting/sewing shows on TV!

    The first one was a rag quilt so it was easy to build it up to "my" size.

    I too go for about 5 x 6 feet......I want to be able to totally wrap it around myself (or whoever is using it), not just cover the top.

    at least 60 x 80

    Sometimes we go horizontal while the TV is on.

    I like my ears and feet covered at the same time.
    Need the width because I'm not so skinny any more.
